All Blacks legend Sir Colin Meads has died following a year-long battle with cancer. He was 81.

Meads was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in August last year and died at Te Kuiti Hospital on Sunday morning.

In 133 matches for the All Blacks between 1957 and 1971, the tough-as-teak King Country lock played 55 tests - 11 as captain - and became recognised throughout the world as the face of New Zealand rugby.
